Living History In The West Village

By AP Connolly

With careful reverence paid to the home’s historic past, 313 West 4th Street has undergone a meticulous two-year renovation. A flexible five-bedroom and seven-bathroom home, this four-and-a-half story plus finished basement residence now features approximately 5,300 square feet of sumptuous living space alongside 800-square feet of private outdoor space.

Initially constructed in 1836, the home sits among one of the oldest intact blockfronts in the West Village. Built in Greek Revival-style, this stunning townhome has been called the “best preserved” house in the row by the historic district report.

The parlor level opens to a stunning glass-and-steel foyer, laid with marble. Herringbone quarter-sewn white oak floors adorn a large rear living room, which features a wall of atelier-style windows and a handsome wood-burning fireplace. A helical staircase curves elegantly from level to level, while the elevator services the basement to the 4th floor.

Smart home features are integrated throughout this well-planned residence, as well as a comprehensive security system and Lutron lighting. Full-house humidification, wall sensors with individual thermostats for each room, and radiant heat flooring under hard surfaces provide year-round comfort. Additionally, the entire home is wired for sound with Bowers & Wilkins speakers.

Number 313 offers the epitome of indoor-outdoor living and entertaining. The garden floor is served by well-stocked kitchens inside and out and anchored by an exterior mudroom entry with storage. A sunlit breakfast room abuts the open chef’s kitchen, which boasts a massive Lincoln Statuario marble island and top-of-the-line appliances. Paved in bluestone, al fresco dining in the spectacular multi-level landscaped garden is effortless, thanks to the full outdoor kitchen.

The basement also holds a built-in Loracani TL-30 safe, custom temperature-controlled 500-bottle wine cellar, and a large media room. The serene full-floor master suite is graced with a decadent pass-through dressing area and luxurious bathroom, featuring a full slab Bianco Dolomiti steam shower with bench.

Above the master level, you’ll find two gracious bedrooms, each with well-appointed en-suite bathrooms. Crowning the home is a sun-filled space that is equally suited as an additional bedroom suite, artist’s studio, home office, or den.

Set on a quiet, sun-soaked block, 313 West 4th Street, is at the center of one of the world’s most sought-after residential enclaves. Esteemed fine dining and historic watering holes stand shoulder-to-shoulder on the surrounding streets, and the magnificent Hudson River Park, High Line, and Whitney Museum are all within easy reach from this stunning West Village abode. Be the first to live in this truly unique West Village offering where no expense was spared. Asking price: $17.995 million.
